Floss Fury

tied by navigator36
Fly Type: Attractor Pattern,
Target Species: Panfish,
Recommended Region: Central Canada,
Material List:
Size 12 or 14 streamer hook
Ribbing- Tinsel wrap or thick thread. Your choice of color.
Wing- Floss color combination. Your choice of colors.
Body- Tying thread itself.

If you haven't tried combed out floss as wing material for a streamer, you will be pleasantly surprised.
As a streamer wing, it is very soft but durable.
It also catches the light and shines very well.
I've been using floss this way for quite a while now.
Tying Instructions: Start by tying the thread on and tie the ribbing on the rear.
Wrap the thread almost to the front and wrap ribbing to the front and tie off. Cement body if you wish.
Take several short strands of floss, align them and comb them out with a toothbrush.
Take another color of floss and repeat with the toothbrush.
Put one color floss over the other and pinch together.
Tie the color floss combination on at the head, trim and
cement. You're done. Very easy.
Presentation Tips: This works well for perch, and smallmouths in slightly larger sizes as well as goldeye.
Retrieve it in jerks and pauses.
